    This happens to me often when I'm adding new covers by the bulk. The best method I use is when the covers stop loading up, I just boot that game and then exit back to loader. Usually it will start making more .wfc files like it should. I'll repeat this a few times until I get all the covers. If I remember right I had this as a problem awhile back and brought it up with Fix. It's a WF mem2 issue if I remember right..

    It's just a nasty bug that needs to be ironed out.. As for downloading emulator covers, it's still a WIP.

    Alright everybody,
    So I got a new cover here and I know it's not an emulated game but since this is the best cover thread, I wanted a comfortable place to share it. I've been playing Pandora's Tower on the Wii but it's only avaliable in UK and Japan. I don't like the original cover with the big fat green sticker and all that UK stuff (no offense UK ppl lol), and the cover is too small so it's was unreadable to my account, so I thought to make my own custom cover for it. I tried to keep it original with the NSTC look. Feel free to use this if you want too.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    It's 1024x680 so all you gotta do is right-click and save picture as..

    WHAAAT!! Shooting a video freaakkkkiing SWEEETNESS dude!, mega good luck wit da band and can't wait 2 c da vid.

    As far as covers go MS/TOW420 u guys are da best! U rock so hard if I wasn't straight I'd love u deeply lol. That's an insane Genesis set man great work guys. When are SNES covers gonna get that kinda love :sad: I don't even have the Master System plugin set up cuz i found myself hardly ever.. basically never using it :P lol.

    Quick question does the Gen-MD Shrunken Spine US Master Set alson include what's in the Genesis/MegaDrive Japan and Japan [T-Eng] sets!? Cuz if they do then I don't need to double d/load the same covers :) Thanks again guys for so much hard work!

    Thanks man! Yeah, looking forward to it, gonna be a shuupa shweet time!

    As for the Gen-MD info, check out the spoiler in the OP, it has all the details about whats included... in short, yes, it includes all the exclusive japan games, but none that have a usa/europe equivelant (double). The translated US cover was used instead of Japan cover where available.

    I won't do any SNES updates until you finish your current project, I only have 5 or 6 that haven't been added yet ATM. :) Don't rush it homie.

    Update 01-29-13: Added a Nintendo DS set to the "Handhelds" section. Thanks to Dump for gathering up the images from thecoverproject, I aligned all the spines, did some tweaking and a lot of cleanups. There was also a recent update to the NES set (details a few posts back). The all-inclusive .rars have been updated, and images added to the individual downloads folder. There is also a seperate update folder located in the individual download folder that has all the new images only. Have Fun!

    Nice work on the DS covers mastershoes. After replacing mine I had, my covers looked way better and more vibrate.

    When I run the emu plugin on WiiFlow it shows two of each game? even though I only have the one rom in the emu folder, also I can't get the covers to show...i've put the in the plugin cover folder, should it be in the emu cover folder? (though none have a cover folder)
